Stories of War and Conflict

Richard’s Coffee Shop is not just a coffee shop, but also a living military museum and gathering place for veterans living in the Lake Norman area. Richard’s is an incredible place of support, healing, and camaraderie for veterans, their families and many members of the community, where veterans of all ages and time periods from WWII to the current conflicts convene.

Within the broader community of veterans at Richard’s, a smaller one has formed, known to patrons as “The Happy Table.” The men of “The Happy Table” have been swapping stories for years - stories that they have wisely compiled in a short book, titled Stories of War and Conflict.

Main Street Books is proud to celebrate the publication of Stories of War and Conflict and to invite four of its contributors to share their reflections during a midday event at the store.
